Seneca Park Zoo Society, RIT to Hold Talk Featuring Conservationist, Diversity Advocate

By Staff

 

lanhamThe Seneca Park Zoo Society, and RIT’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will sponsor a conservation talk featuring Dr. Drew Lanham on the importance of bringing people of color into the field of conservation, and bird-watching.

The talk will begin at 7 p.m., Sept. 27, in the College of Liberal Arts at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and is free and open to the public.

Lanham, a Wildlife Ecology professor at Clemson University and self-proclaimed “black birder,” has delivered talks on diversity in conservation internationally, and advocates for a more democratic and artistic approach to environmentalism, especially in activities such as bird watching, according to the zoo society.

“When I meet another black birder, it’s like encountering an ivory-billed wood-pecker—an endangered species,” Lanham stated. “Extinction looms.”

Lanham currently holds a BA and MS in Zoology, and a PhD in Forest Resources.
